Format: Paperback
This looks almost a chapter by chapter re-release of Calcio by the same author. Maybe it's updated and as good as that book was, why the different title?

Not sure what the scoop is with this but it is a five-star read. Only problem is why come out with the same book under a different title? I just don't get that.

Very frustrating to have bought both this book and the "Calcio A History Of Italian Football" book only to realize it is the same book. I feel it wasn't obvious at all...

HASH(0xa5ba8150) out of 5 stars Extremely Informative Oct. 29 2012
By Vincent A. Sodaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have never been a fan of soccer. I had watched some of the World Cup in 2002, and followed Italy all the way to the Championship in 2006. When 2010 World Cup rolled around, I realized I was actually looking forward to it. So I decided to pick a team in 2011 in the Serie A Italian league, and follow them thru the year. I also bought this book to help me learn about the history of Italian soccer, and to help me select my team. (Juventus).The book was unbelievably captivating. I learned so much about the game in general and particularly about the Italian game. The research was impressive, and the stories often fascinating. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Italian Calcio, and about the sometimes dark history of the game.

HASH(0xa59d9dbc) out of 5 stars The Best Soccer Book I've Ever Read March 27 2008
By Luke Baldacchino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's hard to explain how good this book is. When I was searching for a soccer book, I wanted one that was not only stats and the usual stuff, I wanted one that was written in a fun way and had stuff in it that I had never heard off. This book fits the bill. If you like Soccer and want to read about Italy's soccer traditions, scandal, Money, media, World Cup and a lot lot more, this book will be a hit with you. This book is totally amazing! Buy it!

HASH(0xa59d9d38) out of 5 stars Excellent history of Italien football Nov. 13 2009
By Elmar Sauerwein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the most comprehensive history of Italian football spanning from the very beginnings until today I have seen so far. It incorporates even the 2006 scandals and Worldcup 2006. Excellent read.
In case you are a Tifoso of Italian football this is a must for your library.It rate it even higher than Birgit Schönau: Calcio: Die Italiener und ihr Fußball (The Italiens and their football) written in German.
